Reasons to Install a New AC
Air conditioners are not cheap purchases. Homeowners are usually on the fence about AC repair and AC replacement. If your air conditioner is an older model and its repair costs more than it should, it’s time for a new air conditioner installation.
Age of Equipment
Typically, an AC unit lasts 15 to 20 years, but no two A/C equipment are the same. Usage, location, maintenance, brand, among other variables, determine the lifespan of an AC unit.
In the Phoenix AZ, metro area where most HVAC systems work 24 hours to manage the heat, an AC unit usually lasts anywhere between 8 to 12 years.
The efficiency of an AC unit is measured by SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This is the ratio of the cooling output of an air conditioning system throughout the cooling season, divided by its energy consumption in watt-hours.
A higher SEER rating indicates efficient energy consumption and better humidity control, especially during hot summer months. In Phoenix AZ and surrounding cities, SEER rating must be 14 or higher to ensure indoor comfort.
When your air conditioner works on overdrive, it uses more electrical energy than it should. High energy consumption leads to high energy bills.
Minor AC repair services are normal. All HVAC systems experience wear and tear and need proper maintenance services to prevent major problems. However, when your existing air conditioning unit requires frequent repairs, it may be time to consider a replacement.
Sometimes your house doesn’t get enough cool air due to clogged filters, obstructed vents, and leaky ductwork system. Sometimes your unit makes strange loud noises. A quick home service should let an HVAC technician fix these issues once and for all. If issues keep recurring, be prepared to get a new air conditioner.
In Phoenix, A/C installations are not cheap, but when you start spending on frequent A C repairs, a new A/C will definitely be a cost-efficient option.
Split versus Packaged Air Conditioning System
A professional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning technician will tell you what you need to know about air conditioning systems, but a little homeowner’s knowledge goes a long way.
Packaged AC System
A packaged air conditioning system houses the evaporator coil, compressor, and condenser in one metal cabinet, which is located either on the roof or in a cement slab outside the house. Most packaged units in the Phoenix Area are actually a heat pump the supplies both cooling & heat.
A packaged air conditioning system is ideal for houses with no basement or crawlspace. However, it is prone to rust and weather-induced problems because part of the unit is outdoor. When not installed properly, a packaged system can leak and damage your house’s roof and ceiling.
Split AC System
The split system has an outside cabinet for the condenser and compressor and an indoor cabinet for the evaporator coil and the air handler. A split AC system is normally combined with a gas furnace. In some areas gas utilities are not available to the home, then a split heat pump would be installed. Most split systems have 16 or above SEER rating, which means most split AC units are efficient.
The cost to install a system differs from one place to another. However, the same variables drive installation costs in Mesa, AZ as in other places. The efficiency of a unit, its size and capacity, the contractor, and more are the factors that affect the cost of installing air conditioning equipment.
Air conditioners with high SEER ratings cost more upfront, but because these are highly efficient air conditioners, they’re more cost-efficient in the long run and they ensure cool air for your comfort.
SEER stands for- Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio- This is a important factor to consider when purchasing a new HVAC system. Currently the law permits only 14 SEER or higher equipment to be installed.
One of the ways we try to explain SEER ratings is we look at SEER like MPG on an automobile. The higher the SEER rating the more efficient the system will run.
An air conditioner’s size is measured in tons. It measures the cooling effect of an ac unit. Basically, it tells customers how effectively the unit can remove heat from the house. Hire an HVAC technician to find the right AC size for your home so you won’t run into problems soon after installation.
As far as air conditioning systems are concerned, bigger does not always mean better. An oversized air conditioning unit will quickly cool your home but quick cooling will turn the unit off and on without stabilizing the temperature in your home.
When your unit is undersized, it will have to exert more pressure to cool off your home, especially in summer when the AC is on 24 7. Too much strain on the HVAC system will decrease the lifespan of your air conditioner.
The amount of modifications and extra services like ductwork and design will increase the installation price of an air conditioner. Old duct systems are usually not compatible with modern AC models, thus the need to design and install a new duct system.
Add-ons like a new thermostat or an extended warranty service from a home warranty company also mean more money added to the price. However, some upfront investment will eventually pay off once you start saving from reduced utility bills.
The best time to install an HVAC system is before the heating and cooling seasons, or during spring and fall. Installation service in summer is way more expensive, owing to the law of supply and demand. In Phoenix, the price of HVAC installation is a lot more in summer when the demand for such services is high.
When there is a high demand for HVAC services, the quality of service can also suffer. To be on the safe side and to save extra costs, plan accordingly.
AC installation cost varies from one contractor to another. Unfortunately, not all contractors put a premium on quality service and customer satisfaction. According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) website, almost half of all HVAC systems are not installed correctly, reducing their efficiency by up to 30 percent.
Tips to Find the Best Contractor
Your job as the homeowner is to look for a reputable company with professional technicians who can answer questions about the installation process, aftercare services, and products to choose from.
Your circle of friends and family members is a good source for referrals. Ask about the contractors and trusted technicians in your area. Online reviews about a company are also excellent sources of information about a contractor and their business ethics.
Write down your questions and pick up the phone to call different contractors. Ask about pre-installation services, cost estimates, preferred brands, years in business, warranty programs, emergency home services, qualification of technicians, and everything you want to know before committing to an installation.
